    East Sussex, 1914. It is the end of England's brief Edwardian summer, and everyone agrees that the weather has never been so beautiful. Hugh Grange, down from his medical studies, is visiting his aunt Agatha, who lives with her husband in the small, idyllic coastal town of Rye. Agatha's husband works in the Foreign Office, and she is certain he will ensure that the recent saber rattling over the Balkans won't come to anything.

    You are about to travel to Edgecombe St. Mary, a small village in the English countryside filled with rolling hills, thatched cottages, and a cast of characters both hilariously original and as familiar as the members of your own family. Among them is Major Ernest Pettigrew (retired), the unlikely hero of Helen Simonson's wondrous debut. Wry, courtly, opinionated, and completely endearing, Major Pettigrew is one of the most indelible characters in contemporary fiction.

    Major Ernest Pettigrew (Ret’d) is not interested in the frivolity of the modern world. Since his wife Nancy’s death, he has tried to avoid the constant bother of nosy village women, his grasping, ambitious son, and the ever spreading suburbanisation of the English countryside, preferring to lead a quiet life upholding the values that people have lived by for generations - respectability, duty, and a properly brewed cup of tea.

    Im Sommer 1914 besuchen die Cousins Hugh und Daniel ihre Tante Agatha in East Sussex. Agatha besteht darauf, dass das Säbelrasseln auf dem Balkan unbeachtet verklingen wird. Zudem ist sie mit Wichtigerem beschäftigt: Seit kurzem ist sie Mitglied des örtlichen Schulbeirats und befürwortet die Einstellung einer weiblichen Lehrkraft. Als Beatrice Nash in der Kleinstadt ankommt, ist schnell klar, dass sie deutlich freidenkender - und attraktiver - ist, als eine Lateinlehrerin es sein sollte.
